May 2014[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give a page a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut-and-paste-move repair holding pen. Thank you.

Sorry for the trouble. --Peter238 (talk) 20:16, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
Not a problem! There are a lot of behind-the-scenes rules here, and no one expects newly-registered editors to know them all. -- John of Reading (talk) 20:35, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

Module:IPA symbol/data[edit]

When you edited Module:IPA symbol/data, you didn't add a correspondences entry for voiceless uvular trill, and it's breaking things. Can you add one? Jackmcbarn (talk) 22:05, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

It's there (lines 418 to 422) but it probably doesn't work. I have no idea how to fix this... it's probably the reason why Template:IPA consonant chart links ʀ̥ to Uvular trill, rather than Uvular trill#Voiceless uvular trill. Peter238 (talk) 22:10, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
Lines 418 through 422 is the entry in the symbols section. That's fine. The problem is you need to add an entry in the correspondences section as well, which you didn't do. Jackmcbarn (talk) 22:17, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, but now I can't do anything. "Script error: Lua error at line 3709: '}' expected (to close '{' at line 1784) near 'local'. " is what I get when I try to save. Peter238 (talk) 22:28, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
Tell me what the name, wikipage, soundfile, and type should be, then, and I'll add it for you. Jackmcbarn (talk) 22:31, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! It should be just like "uvular trill", except that it needs to have "voiceless" in front of it. The page name is Voiceless uvular trill, with a capital v. Peter238 (talk) 22:33, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
What about the soundfile and type? Jackmcbarn (talk) 22:48, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
Well, it's a consonant, obviously. The soundfile should be called voiceless uvular trill.ogg . Peter238 (talk) 22:49, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
File:voiceless uvular trill.ogg doesn't exist. Jackmcbarn (talk) 22:54, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
It doesn't but someone can record it. Some of the files listed there don't exist either. Peter238 (talk) 22:55, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
Okay, I've added it. Jackmcbarn (talk) 22:58, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. However, Template:IPA consonant chart still links ʀ̥ to Uvular trill, rather than Uvular trill#Voiceless uvular trill. I'm not sure how to fix that, but that's definitely not how things should be. Peter238 (talk) 23:05, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
That's now fixed as well. Jackmcbarn (talk) 23:13, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks again. Peter238 (talk) 23:19, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
There seems to be a major bug with Template:IPA consonant chart now... try looking at it at the bottom of voiceless alveolar sibilant page, for example. Peter238 (talk) 23:39, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
Looks fine to me. Try WP:PURGE. Jackmcbarn (talk) 23:43, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
It appears to be working fine now. Thanks. Peter238 (talk) 09:25, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Note that I've now simplified the module so that symbols and correspondences are together, so you won't have any of these problems in the future. Jackmcbarn (talk) 01:33, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Very kind of you! Thanks again. Peter238 (talk) 10:17, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Spanish in Morocco[edit]

I see you reverted and then unreverted my edition in Spanish phonology. Be wary of sources that hint at the existence of native speakers of Spanish in Morocco. I've read in several places that sort of innuendo, and it always ends up being a forgery. Except for the few remaining speakers of Haketia, if you consider that a dialect of Spanish, there are no native speakers of Spanish in Morocco, other than expatriates. --Jotamar (talk) 18:46, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Ok, thanks. Peter238 (talk) 13:22, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
